Consider this scenario: In the future, are there going to be more machines that replace human beings? Will technology destroy jobs and exacerbate inequality, or will it help create more significant work and healthier societies? Since when did technological progress take over manual activities and trouble us? When we developed improved technology, the services of a clock keeper, film projectionist, switchboard operator, etc. were no longer required. Digital cameras and mobile phones revolutionized photography. Photographers had no choice but to adopt new technologies in order for them to be resourceful.
We know that a world in which the human resources function is no longer required may exist in the future. It’s not difficult to picture a world in which top talent is fought over so fiercely that the most skillful people employ personal agents to manage their careers. The objective is to be ready for this scenario, whether it comes true or not.
Let’s look ahead another decade to what the future of work will be like in 2030.
The future is difficult to predict, but we can make some guesses based on the trends that are emerging today.
Here are five job roles that will look very different in 2030:
– Recruiters will be replaced by artificial intelligence (AI)
In the future, AI will take over many of the repetitive tasks currently performed by human recruiters. For example, AI can screen resumes and identify qualified candidates much faster than a human can. AI can also conduct initial phone screens and interviews, which would save employers a lot of time and money.
– Data scientists will be replaced by algorithms
Data scientists are currently in high demand because they know how to mine data for insights that can help businesses make better decisions. However, their jobs will eventually be replaced by algorithms that can do the same thing.
– Marketers will be replaced by AI and augmented reality (AR)
Marketers currently use a lot of guesswork to determine which marketing campaigns will be successful. However, in the future, AI and AR will be able to track consumer behavior much more accurately and provide real-time feedback on what is working and what isn’t.
– Salespeople will be replaced by chatbots
Chatbots are already starting to replace human salespeople in some industries. For example, many companies now use chatbots to handle customer service inquiries. In the future, chatbots will become even more sophisticated and will be able to handle more complex sales tasks.
– CEOs will be replaced by algorithms
In the future, algorithms will be able to make better decisions than human CEOs. This is because they will have access to more data and will be able to process it much faster than a human can. As a result, many companies will be run by algorithms instead of people.
What will the workplace of 2030 look like?
In 2030, the workplace will be very different from what it is today. There will be fewer human workers and more machines. The jobs that will still be done by humans will require more skills and knowledge. And the companies that are successful in the future will be those that adopt new technologies quickly. Also worth noting that most of the work will be done remotely.
The future of work will be more flexible, with more people working remotely or from anywhere, and the hope is for this practice to be effective. This is because technology will allow people to connect and collaborate from anywhere in the world. And as the cost of living continues to rise, more people will opt for this type of work arrangement in order to save money.
